RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
There were two reasons that started me to growing my own food 3 years ago:
1. was wanting to teach my children where food comes from, and wanting to control what they eat, and to teach them how to eat healthy.
2. the next reason was food safety, last year when tomatoes were a big scare, we were happily eating organic and fresh tomatoes all season long out of our garden.
The benefits to my family with food gardening are many-fold, we get exercise, we spend time together as a family, we save money on organic foods, we eat healthier, and my young children are learning about nature, and science at the ages of 4 and 6.
It has been an amazing and wonderful experience for us as a family. During the summer, we are eating many all veggie meals, and are grocery bill goes down noticeably.
To off set the cost, we include the cost of seeds, and veggie in our grocery bill...its food afterall!
Thanks for doing this!
